FreeBook: Leveraging Data Discovery in the Library

and Developing Participatory Intranets

Discovery tools are becoming increasingly popular in academic libraries, yet there is little information available concerning the tools used, and their implementation, maintenance, and evaluation. This FreeBook thus provides library practitioners and students of Library and Information Science (LIS) with guidance on how to best enable data discovery, while creating agile participatory intranets, in order to best serve patrons, by facilitating better internal communication, knowledge, and data.

Extra Guide Included: Assessing Information Needs.
